With summer vacation fast approaching, I’m thinking about parents (myself included) pressed to find something fun and different to do with their kids, be it at the beach, in the car or even in a restaurant. Here’s one sticky solution from Chronicle Books and Paul Frank Industries.
If your kids go crazy over Julius the monkey, then they’ll flip over this Julius! Pop-Up Sticker Activity Kit. Included in this portable package of plenty are a pop-up tropical island scene with 2 sticker sheets to decorate it (plus another 8 on separate sheets to stick in the activity book). With mazes and pictures to sticker, to an abundance of other doodling distractions like design the latest invention or create your own costumes and cupcakes, the 48 page activity book is packed with super stuff to entertain your child for hours.
Kids can stick and draw to their hearts’ content while you catch up on the latest summer fiction. Inside the kit they’ll find familiar Julius and other Paul Frank friends such as Clancy, Bob, Birdie, Worry Bear and Steve the Crab. And be sure to turn to the last page where you can pop out more characters to stand up at the beach and surf shop scene. I’d recommend this for kids 8 and under and at $14.95, it makes a perfect party present, too.
